“The wicked don’t care about the rights of the poor, but good people do.”
People who are comfortable tend to not worry about the rights of the poor and oppressed. People will say, “Let them pick themselves up”. With the second most important commandment being love others as you love yourself is this really how you want to be helped? Is this how you would help your children? I bet not.
If you don’t stand up for the poor, then the ones who oppress them will come after you next.
